People seem to have a very negative view of the Germans.
I've often heard Irish people call them boring. But anyone who's lived there will tell you this is far from the truth.
They tend to be quite good at their jobs and take it seriously, but as soon as they're finished work they become very active. They'll be doing activities right through the week after work. Not just lounging around the house watching TV.
Also, the women seem to be able to have plenty of one night stands and not get called whores, which is a delight, perhaps.
They also have great diets.
Even their beer has very strict brewing laws. You won't find the mad chemicals you find in most beers in any German beer.
Anyway, I just think they're a great bunch of lads (and lassies).
What are boardies experiences and opinions of ze Germans?
